Touchpoint - Interactive Window

Some things change rapidly, a lot remains the same and that’s what our world was, is and ever will be.
The growth of mobile has already happened and is going on. And important elements for us are the touchpoints.
If we talk about touchpoints in the consumer journey nowadays – their number, diversity and variety of sources are increasing on and on. When I am taking about touchpoints – I am talking about the point, the situation, the context where you have to trigger attention and have to show the next possible, useful step to learn more about your product and service.

To prepare for these new touchpoints and the changing behavior you should care about ...

  • Omni- and ever-present touchpoints
  • Using cloud technology - using a mix of devices
  • Personalization - Permission based profiling
  • Collaborated and social aspects
  • Seamless consumer experience
  • Real time offers and fulfillment

You have to understand the whole data and service around your products and services as one thing provided by cloud technology and represented context sensitive and relevant by various devices everywhere and anytime triggered by situations and products.

To forge a new path, you have to be one of the first. Discover the innovative world of omni-channel retail! And catch your consumers’ attention and awareness where you can and where it’s relevant and meaningful for the consumer.

Let me show you a few great examples of interactive windows ...
